KUWAIT CITY, July 24: The Ministry of Interior has cautioned the public about the growing threat of deceptive phone calls and messages which falsify legitimate government entities. These fraudulent attempts aim to trick individuals into disclosing sensitive personal information or providing their bank’s OTP (One- Time Password) code, reports Al-Rai daily. It is essential, the ministry says, to exercise caution and verify the authenticity of such communications before sharing any personal information and strongly advises citizens not to fall prey to these scams and refrain from responding to any suspicious calls or messages claiming to represent an official body.

The deceptive practices employed by these fraudsters can lead to unauthorized access to bank accounts, resulting in potential financial losses and identity theft. To protect yourself and your assets, stay vigilant and follow these precautionary measures by never sharing sensitive personal information like bank account details, social security numbers, or passwords with unknown callers or senders.

The ministry also calls on everyone to be wary of unsolicited messages or calls, especially those requesting urgent actions or claiming to offer lucrative opportunities; verify the legitimacy of the caller or sender by cross-checking with official channels or contacting relevant government authorities directly and report any suspicious incidents to local law enforcement or the Ministry of the Interior to prevent further fraudulent activities. For more information and updates on this matter, citizens and residents are asked to visit the official website of the Ministry of the Interior to stay informed, stay cautious, and protect yourself against deceptive attempts that could compromise your financial security and personal information.
